Kicking off 2014 in style, mTrip is excited to announce the launch of V2.5 with our first major redesign! Over the years we’ve updated the design and added several popular features but V2.5 is the biggest update yet! Breaking off from our real-life based design, the travel guides now sport a flat user interface. The new interface is slicker, more functional and easier to use! We’ve also added some new features, such as additional trip planning options, new ways to sort the guide and a search option directly on the map. Read more
It’s the tried and true question for travel aficionados: what fares better, a paper guidebook or a mobile travel guide? Planetopia magazine, in association with the German TV channel SAT1 sent two of its reporters to Barcelona to do a true comparison between a paper guidebook, two mobile apps (mTrip & a competitor) as well as brochures from the tourist office.
As a new & exciting way to promote cities and tourism, mTrip is now offering a white label platform for tourism boards and city representatives. The city guides, available on iPhone, iPod Touch & Android will provide visitors with a planning and guiding tool while navigating foreign locales.
Are you nervous to use apps on your iPhone or Android while traveling abroad? Do you fear that you will incur roaming fees or eat up your data plan? This is an understandable fear and in the case of mTrip, it isn’t a problem! I’m no different than you in that I would never use an app while abroad if I thought it would charge me extra fees.
